The reverse proxy for protecting web is now used a lot and it's fashion :))) 5- The apache 2.0 and apr api are more user friendly and provide stuff to make more easy modules developpement (filters, bucket brigades etc...) It's possible to do all you want without modifying the apache core there is a lot of good point making apache 2.0 better than apache 1.3 but i can't remember all at the same time :) when i will find more, i will add it in a list :) > > >>I will try to compile both. >> >> > > > m.e Content of type "text/html" skipped
